In the late hours of Monday it has been confirmed that a Hel Supercarrier has become the latest supercapital to fall victim to the Pandemic Legion‘s infamous #REKKINGCREW.

The gang, who operate exclusively to capture unsuspecting supercapitals were able to snag the kill as part of a ruse, this time luring the naive pilot to a POS under the pretense of a sale.

RoCkEt_X of Pandemic Legion and leader of #REKKINGCREW had the following to say regarding the kill

RoCkEt X > guy wanted to sell us a hel
RoCkEt X > so he wanted to use our POS
RoCkEt X > so we offered him a garage door pos
RoCkEt X > he lit the cyno
RoCkEt X > we jumped in, r***d him
RoCkEt X > and put the shield up after he was dead

HELDEAD

The wreckage of the vessel lies strewn across space.

The victim, Albert Arbosa, is a member of the corporation R.u.s.s.i.a.n. S.p.a.c.e., a renting corporation who reside in Northern Associates space, the rental alliance owned by Northern Coalition. I was able to speak with Albert Arbosa and he was able to give the following statement using his limited English vocabulary.

Albert Arbosa > NANPINGPHU fucking bitch
Albert Arbosa > it’s pixels so that to worry about)

In addition, Albert Arbosa forwarded me a mail that he had sent to LadyScarlet, the head of Northern Assosciates. renting operations.

Кому: LadyScarlet,

I filed an advertisement for the sale of the hel . I was contacted by the pilot NANPINGPHU. to pass on the cyno he left the game . and came to the fleet . ust chat logs. I ask you to understand

This suggests the victim may be seeking some form of reimbursement as a result of being led to his death by his alliance mates, or simply informing LadyScarlet of the awoxer. Trust is a commodity in short supply in rental alliances as there are no vetting or api verification procedures for members. This means almost anyone can join and invariably things like this can happen.

This is the latest in a long series of incidents involving the gang which also comprises of members from PURPLE HELMETED WARRIORS, HAX. (now known as Wrecked.), Parental Control and Nihilists Social Club. Normal activities of this gang range from using spies to monitoring ship movements across regions.

A video for the kill is shown below:

  • Danny Payne

    So PL is still a pack of cunts ? ok … next story

    • yoyo

      it is like falling for Goon’s recruitment scam, which should be well known to all players, If you attempt to buy supers from/sell to PL, 99% chance of a gank lol.

      • [SNIGG] Rocket X

        Actually, it’s more likely to be a gank if it’s NOT us… because if we’re going to gank you… the characters we’d be using to set you up… aren’t going to be in PL are they… you dumb shit.

    • santa

      YES

    • [-LEG.] Archeras Umangiar

      did you own a hel maybe not to long ago? you sound slightly butthurt…

      • Random CFC Grunt

        Why? He simply stated a well known fact.

  • ExdioS

    “Trust is a commodity in short supply in rental alliances as there are no vetting or api verification procedures for members.”

    Do you mean from an alliance level or a corp level? As many renter corps run full API/History checks on their members on a regular basis. I know when I have been involved in renter corps the API checks are pretty thorough.

  • meh

    Assuming this will go like any other post about PL on how they suck, they are sad and a bunch of cunts, why so much hate towards them? They do what any other person, corp, alliance or coalition would do to their enemies. One of the most common issues I have seen people having with them was if they are not winning with the fleet they brought in they just bring capitals and win by default cause of that. I don’t understand the issues people have with that. Of course a soldier, team, platoon, army will call in reinforcements if they were losing, that’s a sane and normal thing to do, I bet that in your country when police is doing some operation and they mess up and are in need of reinforcements the higher ups tell them:”No, its a bad and dishonorable thing to do, we won’t be sending you reinforcements, you can all just die in glory.” In this case they managed to snag a super from an enemy by using an undercover agent or some displeased person to deal a blow to the enemy army, again something that any country in the world does. Were there ways for him to protect himself from getting blown up, yes, he failed to do so and he got blown up, his own mistake for not being smarter about it.

      For me, it largely boils down to them dropping 7 titans (and having a supercarrier fleet on standby) on anything with a pulse. Shuttles especially.
      It was funny at first. But then it just kept going.

      • Vladimir

        with 99% blue, what else can they do? (which involves taking no risk ofc)

        • Thatguy

          PL have very few blues and the blue doughnut is exaggerated greatly.

          • brathahn

            few blues ? if they get dropped they call in NCdot and the battle is over against other N3 members. if they are trapped by the CFC like the B-R station they get blue standings to evac their shit.

            yeah, few blue standings …

          • Random CFC Grunt

            Considering that CFC has no reason to wipe out PL completely (who would keep us supplied with fresh, FOTM doctrines?), post-B-R standings were hardly a surprise, besides, PL did eat a lot of dick back then. As for NCDOT – everyone in Eve needs “friends”, even if you put that word in quotes, especially if you’re an elitist alliance that can barely field half a fleet without alts.

          • Thatguy

            Yes, those two examples mean LITERALLY EVERYBODY is blue to one another.

    • whatever

      To understand why we hate PL, you should make it clear what breed of people fill their ranks. Why would a person want to join PL? In typical scenario, that person just wants to use his supers in SAFETY. The leadership will wipe your ass every time you shit your pants. Isn’t it great? “No it is not” – that’s how will answer a mature man. “Yay, safety!” – that’s what PL member will say.

      “Assuming this will go like any other post about PL on how they suck, they are sad and a bunch of cunts, why so much hate towards them?”

      You just answered your own question.

  • Old Vet

    P dank AT ship(s) on this KM. First use of cham and moracha ona super??

    • [-LEG.] Archeras Umangiar

      both of those 2 at ships killed other subcaps before, so just another killmail

      • Old Vet

        bitter?

  • Zwaf

    Hey, dont forget Hydra and Warlords of the deep!! We are the most valuable part of this group and without us nothing would happen.

  • lol

    Meh let ‘m enjoy while they can. Soon PL will have to depend on a bloc for brawls as supers are going to become useless. They don’t even come close to being able to touch CFC on their own now. Come to think who they will actually be able to take on by themselves after the patch? Ah yes, the likes of Brave or Provi I suppose. They could try w-space?

    • Ryu

      wow, sodium levels super high

  • meh

    why on earth didnt the seller have his own pos set up and with the super logged off in it before posting his sell ad?

    • Cyber God

      Meh….why are you attempting to utilize logic? This is Eve………..

  • hmm

    i thought garage door was considered an exploit?

  • Andrew M

    Yeah…… no one cares.

    Edit: Since I was being too trolish
    Just nothing fascinating or article worthy about another individual super or titan dying, less especially to PL.

  • Amarrvictor

    Best part about all of this is the PL hate and there’s only 4 PL on the KM. Seiran isn’t even in PL. I LOVE IT.
